Outback Accommodation

Private and remote, Kilcowera is a great destination for a week away or as a stopover on your journey through Outback Queensland and is open to visitors from sometime in March, depending on the weather, through to 31st October. Requests to camp or to stay in the accommodation over the summer months will be considered by the owners on a case by case basis.

Facilities include: showers, toilets, a laundry, fireplaces, tables, barbecues, wood and a basic camp kitchen.


A short way from the quarters visitors can bush camp at Cardenyabba Lagoon at a series of private and secluded campsites along the waterfront. Facilities at the lagoon include: a long drop toilet, individual fireplaces with wood supplied, complimentary use of our kayak, direct water frontage and loads of Yabbies.
